Abstract

A novel phosphoramidite derivative of cholesterol, with an ether-linked hexaethylene glycol (HEG) spacer arm, has been obtained through simple and reproducible solid phase modified oligonucleotide synthesis manipulations. This building block and the known phosphoramidite derivative of 3b-(2-hydroxyethoxy)cholesterol have been exploited in standard oligonucleotide synthesis protocols for the preparation of 5'- conjugates of the G-quadruplex-forming 5'TGGGAG3' oligomer, known as the Hotoda’s sequence, to produce new potential anti-HIV agents.
Keywords: phosphoramidite; cholesterol; solid phase synthesis; anti-HIV G-rich oligonucleotides phosphoramidite; cholesterol; solid phase synthesis; anti-HIV G-rich oligonucleotides
